As with nearly every morning Sunday started with a run. Before I retired I traveled a lot. Travel outside of the US was common. Everywhere I traveled I ran. I’ve run in 49 of the 50 US States and 20 of the 195 countries in the world. I ‘ve ‘Officially’ raced in US, Italy, France, Germany, England and Japan. Most of those competitions were on the road. In England, a 10K, it was mixed trail and road.
Running allowed me to see parts of the world I might not have had I not gotten out for a run. What I’ve found is that running in cities is a great way to sightsee but running trails has really become a favorite. I have found memories of trail runs in Australia, Japan and Malaysia. I never got lost on those trails. I did get lost running in Toronto. Canadians are really helpful and the locals guided me back to my hotel. My morning runs here in Georgia are nearly 100% trail running.
Running has become an element of archery training. I may not sign up for another race anytime soon. That is unless I find a nearby trail run that happens on a weekend that isn’t filled with an archery event.
This weekend I missed the first local 3D tournament of 2020. It was this past Sunday and I’d made plans without having the 2020 3D schedule at my fingertips. Naturally, all my friends who competed posted photos and bragged about how much fun they had shooting.
I still practiced on Sunday and was thankful that my father-in-law has a nice practice range at his house in Tignall, Georgia. It was cold over the weekend but the weather wasn’t so bad that I couldn’t get a nice long practice.
Despite missing the 3D tournament in Shady Dale, Georgia it was a good day to run and do some solo practice.
